‘One of the plurals’ uses a singular verb. e.g: One of the monkeys is naughty; the subject of the verb ‘is’ one.
‘One of the plurals that/who’ uses a plural verb: e.g. One of the monkeys that are naughty; the subject of the verb is not the singular one but the plural monkeys.
Ain't the two expressions different?

"One of the plurals" should use plural form verbs?

Can we infer from the OA that ketchup often contains both sugar and chemical ingredients in a high amount? If so, doesn't the meaning conveyed by OA change the meaning conveyed by original sentence, which says ketchup contains only sugar in high amount?

Split 1
Use of although and and yet is redundant , either is sufficient .

Split 2
That refers refers to products so we have to use plural verb

Therefore B is the answer .

Hi,

Though I am not an expert, I can help you out with this query. You are correct that One of Xs requires a singular verb afterwards; however, please note that the above construction is slightly different. We have One of Xs THAT. The general rule is whenever we have One of Xs THAT/WHICH, the verb must agree with the noun prior to "that/which". If that noun is singular, we use a singular verb. If plural, then plural. Here we have "One of food products that are most loved". That refers back to the food products, which is plural. Hence, we must follow up with a plural verb (are).

Hope this helps!

I have taken a look at these options and the question here seems to be one based on our understanding of redundancies and subject verb agreements. Out of the five options, two have redundancy issues. A uses both ‘Although’ and ‘yet’. Both of them do not have to be used, so there is a redundancy error. D makes this same error, with ‘Even though’ in place of ‘although’. C and E both suffer from subject verb disagreements, they both use the verb ‘is’ to refer to ‘food products’, as if they were referring to ‘One of the…’



So the answer is B.

Official Explanation



(A) This answer choice is stylistically flawed. Using both Although and yet, which are both opposition words, creates Redundancy. The use of a Double conjunction is one of the specific redundancies that should always be corrected.

What helps us identify this Redundancy is the following Stop Sign:
Though/Although/Even though/Despite/In spite of... later followed by but/yet/however/still/nevertheless


(B) This answer choice corrects the original Double Conjunction error by removing one of the conjunctions (yet).

(C) Although this answer choice corrects the original Double Conjunction error by removing one of the opposition conjunctions, it is grammatically incorrect. The relative clause that is most loved by children describes the noun that appears immediately before it, namely, the food products. Since the food products is plural, the verb that follows it also needs to be plural. However, is is singular.

(D) Same as A

(E) Although this answer choice corrects the original Double Conjunction error by removing one of the conjunctions, it is grammatically incorrect. The relative clause that is most loved by children describes the noun that appears immediately before it, namely, the food products. Since the food products is plural, the verb that follows it also needs to be plural. However, is is singular.

Answer: B
